Like most Bostonians, I love my vacations in Cape Cod. I love the sights, the sounds, the smells, but most of all, I love the food. If there was one catagory of food that I could eat every single day for the rest of my life it would be seafood. Fish, clams, lobster, sushi, I love it all!!
Now I have been going to the Cape every summer for my whole life. Sometimes several times a summer. Because of that I have some favorite restaurants that I always try to hit up when I’m in the area.
Over the 3 days we were on vacation we ate some pretty incredible food.
Every morning we get breakfast and take it to rock harbor. This trip we discovered a new bagel place called Jomama’s. They have amazing breakfast sandwiches and wraps. We went both mornings so I got to try 2 different creations.
The Western – Ham, Red Pepper, Onion & Cheddar Cheese Omelet on a sundried tomato bagel
This breakfast was pretty epic! It was the perfect balance of met, veggies, and bread and there were soo many flavors to savor!
Veggie Lovers – (Tomato, Scallion, Roasted Red Peppers, Avocado, & Muenster Omelet) on an everything bagel
The avocado was amazing in the sandwich and I will certainly be using it when I make my own at home. The only problem with this one was that the everything bagel really overpowered the omelet. I definitely should have gotten it on either a whole grain or their sundried tomato bagel.
Sir. Crickets is an amazing seafood shack in Orleans. They are famous for their fried clams and chowder so of course, we had to stop there on our trip.
God I love seafood!
We were on the Cape for 2 night. The first night we headed to a pub called Land Ho to get some food and watch the Bruins (they ended up sweeping Pittsburgh that night!) We weren’t particularly starving so we split a plate of fish and chips.
Fish and chips is a pretty hard thing to mess up, so it’s always a safe bet. And eating fish at a place where you can see and feel the ocean just makes it taste 100% better.
Our second dinner was over the fire, so please excuse the photos.
Nolan cooked up some buffalo chicken and hot dogs over the fire.
I think that if I had my way I would grill all of my food. That smoky flavor and char that if gives food is just fantastic. And the smell? It’s intoxicating. Cooking over a fire always makes me feel good about myself. Like if I was ever stranded somewhere (with a lighter) I could easily feed myself. haha
And of course, no meal cooked over a fire would be complete without a giant marshmallow for dessert. And I do mean giant!
My only regret from the weekend was not going to the Ice Cream Cafe for some delicious soft serve. Luckily I plan to be down the Cape a few times this summer.
